From jails to hospitals to the analyst's couch, the venues of psychiatry have shifted amid debate over the nature of mental illness: is it psychosocial or biological? Andrew Scull follows the path from the asylum to the street, from shock therapies to talk therapy, and on to psychiatry's dependence on drugs, whose side effects are often ignored.
